Small Happy Dance

Happy Monday Everyone!

Hope you're all ready for the week ahead - lord knows I wish I was a little more ready, a longer weekend would be a start... but Monday will wait for no one!

First off, I want to give a shout out to all my new followers. Welcome Welcome! So Happy to have you here :)

Secondly, I've still been stitching despite my tendinitis. When I say stitching... I mean stitching VERY slowly. BUT stitching none-the-less. In fact it doesn't hurt all that much when I stitch, which backs up the reasoning that it wasn't the stitching that gave me the tendinitis in the first place but something else. However, stitching with a wrist/hand brace is somewhat cumbersome to say the least, especially when it's on the needle-holding hand! I don't think I'll be able to stop stitching completely for the time being (just love it way too much) but instead will take my time with frequent breaks to ensure that I don't make it flare up. 

In any case, I have a small finish to show you all:

"Santa's House"
By Country Cottage Needleworks
Stitched on 32ct mystery fabric



Such a fun little stitch and with 12 in the series I'll have a nice little display for my future house, which, cross my fingers, we will start building in April-May time frame! 

Safe to say my life right now is all about house plans :) This blog may well turn into "the building of my house saga" haha.

Have a great week everyone!!! 

I have some news for later on the week so be sure to watch this space!!! ;)

  7. Congratulations on your finish. I love this series, but am resisting buying it at the moment. I have kind of promised myself only to stitch from stash this year and trying really hard to stich to it. Hope you wrist/hand feels better soon and doesn't stop you stitching.
